As we shape up the interface between the designer and the virtual environment we are naturally going to produce a greater and far better outcome.
It will enable the end user to be more creative and experimental and explore possibilities that were previously tedious or impossible. The design possibilities of virtuality will enhance the outlook of environments.
Now we can also term it according to the duration it can last. For any new thing the duration is 10-30 years. If it lasts for 10 it would be popular as a tool; another 10 and it would very well be a theory and if it survives all 30 years it will soon be defined as a revolution.
It was the end of the 20th century and the beginning of 21st century that saw the emergence of Digital architecture. It was basically the progress of computer aided software and technologies that aided the drastic makeover. The computer applications transformed the design methodology; this is especially true for the "virtual reality", CAD/CAM technologies and internet.
Digital architecture today is how drafting was invented by the Greek or how modelling came into being in the period of renaissance. We can also consider it as a theory as still it is in the development stages and is being experimented and explored with.
What it does is that it simply assists the design thinking process of humans through processes like internet aided designs and web based designs. And if this progresses to alter the design methodology in future along with the thinking patterns then we might be witnessing something that will be more than just a theory..
To assess the possibilities of digital architecture to the fullest FEIDAD Award (Far East International Digital Architectural Design Award) was launched in 2000.The major aim of it was to capture projects using digital concepts like electronic media, information, computing, cyberspace and virtual to define and elaborate on future spaces and architecture in digital age.
The study and utilization of new techniques would allow the most creative minds to come together anywhere in the world to construct and imagine collectively richer, dynamic and digitally enabled collaborative work environments. The
